Baolin Deng, C.W. LaPierre Professor of civil and environmental engineering, will serve on the Environmental Protection Agency Science Advisory Board’s Drinking Water Committee until 2018. He’ll also serve on a task force to update the Missouri Water Plan, an effort being undertaken by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
In commemoration of its 50th anniversary, the MOWRRC held a symposium featuring speakers from all over central Missouri on topics including Missouri water issues, water management and water conservation.
Baolin Deng began his tenure as the Missouri Water Resources Research Center’s new director on March 1, replacing Professor Emeritus Tom Clevenger.
Just a few feet below the surface of the Earth — seasonally baked dry in summer’s heat and frozen solid in icy winter months — the soil remains a stable 55 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the location. This constant temperature represents an incredible source of environmentally friendly, sustainable energy to heat and cool […]
A diverse group from across campus came together this semester to sponsor an undergraduate research project looking into stormwater best management practices at the University of Missouri. The student team is laying groundwork to evaluate existing projects in preparation of data collection that will be used to inform future decisions. It is hoped the effort […]
As organisms go, the microbes that are the heroes of this healthy wetland tale are among the toughest and tiniest. They can live in an environment that lacks both oxygen and sunlight, and roughly four hundred of them will fit into the period at the end of this sentence. University of Missouri Civil Engineering Assistant […]
Story by: Sarah Scully Kathleen Trauth, an associate professor in the civil and environmental engineering at the University of Missouri, and Ray Semlitsch, a curators’ professor in biological sciences at MU, aim to guide future rights-of-way (ROWs) designs and placement of mitigation wetlands. They also plan to create experimentally proven methods to relocate rare, declining […]
Marine veteran Neil Ouellette sees both public service and personal opportunities in a renewable energy training program Mizzou Engineering is helping teach. Injured during the Gulf War and subsequently discharged in 1991, the 39-year-old Kirkwood, Mo. resident returned home to work as a truck driver and a builder before launching a successful outdoor landscaping business. […]
Several public water suppliers struggling to meet tougher federal standards are tapping Mizzou Engineering water quality experts in hopes of finding ways to remove cancer-causing byproducts from their systems. Mizzou Engineering’s Water Resources Research Center already is working with Columbia and Boonville to discover exactly where and how excess disinfection byproducts (DBPs) that could cause […]
As the nanotechnology revolution builds, Mizzou Engineering and federal researchers are joining forces to try to identify some guidelines for safely assimilating the tiny particles that fuel the technology into the environment. Baolin Deng, a civil and environmental engineering associate professor, and Hao Li, a mechanical and aerospace engineering assistant professor, are part of a […]
